Directions

  1. Fill large kettle half-full of water and bring to a boil. Combine flour, salt and eggs in a medium-sized mixing bowl, stirring with a fork. Add water until batter stretches 6 - 7 inches before tearing when pulled up on a spoon. Place large spoonful of batter on wooden cutting board, tilt it over kettle and slice thin strips of batter off into the boiling water. Dip knife into cold water between slices to prevent batter from sticking. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes and remove from a slotted spoon. Drain and place in a warmed serving bowl. Continue until batter is gone.
